Summer is here!! And it's really hot in here. Daytime can reach almost 50˙C!! *pphhiiuuhhh*. Since the kids can't play outside, we have to prepare for some projects and activities at home. And thanks to Lisa Tilse for her brilliant idea :).

You will need:
Newspaper or (dita - paper scrap)
Sticky tape (dita - paper tape) and PVA glue
For each bird you will need to make the following pieces: a beak, head, body and tail. As well as 2 long flat folded strips. The head and body are spheres and the tail is formed by shaping a ball into a cone shape with flat ends. You can see the shapes in the photo.
Attach the head to the body and then the tail to the body with sticky tape. Then roll a small strip of newspaper up to form a cone for the beak and attach it to the head. Next take two squares of newspaper (that you’ve previously scrunched and flattened) and fold them into long strips. Wrap one strip around your bird where the head joins the body and one where the tail joins. This will hide the joins and enhance the body shape. Use lots of sticky tape to make the joins smooth.
Cut fabric scraps into small squares 2 -3 cm in size and follow the cheat’s papier mache instructions to cover your bird. Set your bird aside to dry.
Cut 2 wings from fabric. If you can, find a shape on your fabric that mimics the shape of a wing.
